Despite great historic importance, a wealth of local volunteers and rich heritage assets across Southampton, the local heritage sector remains fragmented and under-resourced. A Heritage Strategy for Southampton seeks to identify the City’s multitude of heritage assets and support the local authority alongside local organisations and communities to undertake a visioning exercise for heritage in the city and to develop a strategy to increase engagement and investment in this important sector.
Southampton Cultural Development Trust, in partnership with, Southampton City Council and Southampton Heritage Federation, with funding from Historic England are seeking a consultant to co-produce a framework to enable a better managed, cared for, understood and integrated Heritage sector in Southampton.
The process will include conducting a Heritage audit, a capacity audit and a producing community engagement plan. Responses to the brief should include: A clear methodology, evidence of skills and evidence of previous community consultation.
Deadline for submissions: 24 May 2019
